  • Dear Mary and Staff, I want to thank you for all your help over the last 5 and a half years in providing care for my wife, Patricia. She went home to be with the Lord Jan21,2014. She passed peacefully at Sacred Journey Hospice. She sure left a hole in my life and I feel so empty without her. However, I rejoice that she is at peace now and can dance and sing to the Lord. Again, many, many Thanks.
